My DD Turns 25 Today

I can't believe that my DD is 25 years old today. She was three days late in arriving into this world and is usually late for most things. She cried all the time and NEVER slept...EVER!! I think we slept through the night exactly twice during the first year of her life. She has the BEST personality and is so easy going, sometimes too much so. She loves animals, WOW and zombie movies. I love her with all my heart!
We happened to be at the grocery store this weekend and she chose a cake (I usually make one) because it had a dragon on it.

One of the gifts I was going to give her was to teach her to knit. OK STOP laughing! I think I remember how to knit, not purl mind you but knit. So I found a pattern for those wrist/hand warmers at JAF that was free and chose some yarn and needles and headed home. I thought I should try it so today, instead of gardening or cleaning she asked me to sit and watch movies with her and her dad. Hey, HUGE Type A personality here, but I did it. While we were watching movies though I began to knit. I got both hand warmer things knitted and taken off the needle (no small task considering the last time I knitted I was probably 9 or so! Now I need to get a needle so I can sew them together. I kind of enjoyed doing it too. I think I may want to learn how to knit socks next. AND I will teach her how to do it too! Please don't laugh, but here is my first attempt at knitting in many years.

I did manage to get most of my son's tee shirts fused to interfacing today also. I did realize that I need more interfacing and I need more of his lax shirts. I also managed to find something in my stash I was looking for and was going to surprise someone with if I found it. Notice Autumn guarding it for me! Hope you are not alergic to cat hair!!

I am just showing a peek so the person I am sending it to will have to guess who they are!!
I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. I didn't manage to get as much done as I had hoped but sometimes that's how it goes, right?
